The West Shore has the largest
circulation of any publication in Or
egon or Washington Territory.
Since our last caution against quacks
a new lot of them have arrived amongst
us, and still more are announced to
come. We arc therefore compelled to
again remind our readers that no reg
ular or learned physician ever needs to
roam from village to village soliciting
patients. Ninety -nine out of every
hundred of this ilk are ignorant, good-for-nothing
scamps, who, too lazy to
make an honest living, adopt the title
of Doctor, in order to fleece the people
more easily, and by giving up part of
their ill-gotten gains to unprincipled
newspaper publishers, get the use of
their columns for the purpose of dis
seminating lies about cures that never
were performed. Do not be hum
bugged by high-sounding titles of In
stitutes, etc, and shun newspapers who
will sell their columns to such fellows,
who will rob you of health and life

YOUNG RIVER PALLS.
Young River Falls are located but I
few miles from Astoria, Oregon, and
as their name Indicate, are formed by
the Young river. It was here that
Lewis and Clarke camped in iSofi,afte
completing the survey of the Columbia
river. The scene is at once wild and
charming. The fall bounds suddenly
from a mass of undergrowth and gaudy
flowers, and tumbles down into a dark
pool, In a white apron of water. These
falls are tendered usually interest in
by the large number of birds that t're
qucnl their vicinity, the profusion of
the Rom, and the lowering altitude of
the fin that environ them. In fact, it
is a most charming spot to pitch camp
during the coining hot July days.
A PKW STATISTICS.
In this age of steam and hurry we
frequently forget that we have yet in
our midst common carriers, who, with
horse-flesh to aid them are rendering,
day liter day and month after month,
valuable services to the country In the
way of facilitating travel and earning
the United States mails. Such a one
is the Northwestern Stage Company,
now the second largest in the world
only the South Coast Stage Compain
being larger, The latter, however, is
made up of numerous short lines, whilst
the Northwestern has the longest single
line, the distance from The Dalles,
in WttCO county, Oregon, to Winne
mUCCJ, on the C, T. R. R., being (kSo
mill. There is also a main branch
from Boise City to Kelton, a distance
of -' JO mills, atid two short lines con
necting with the main lines, as from
Walla Walla to CtyUSC, forty miles,
and from Botie to Idaho City and
Quartburg, forty miles, making the
entire distance 1,010 miles. Over this
long stretch of country, extending from
Oregon and Washington, through Ida
ho into Nevada and Utah, the com
pany's stages run daily both way.
making 2,020 mites to perform with
horse-flesh every day, summer and win
ter. Including stoppages, the speed
attained can safely be set down at five
miles an hour, night and day. To ac
complish this the company keep up a
band of 800 horses and sixty-four stages
ind wagons. They have eighty barns
md stations, forty-five drivers, eighty
hostlers, twelve local agents, and four
division agents. Mr. Wm. IJ. Morris,
at Boise City, is the Superintendent,
and he is ably assisted by Mr. A, II.
Roomer, of Summit Station, Idaho.
The mail service is usually performed
on time, and prompt settlements made
with all employes quarterly. The con
sumption of hay and grain annually
foots up to over 6,000,000 pounds. The
company s shops tire located at Boise
City, Idaho, and here they employ ten
skilled mechanics. Theiroriginal work
will compare very favorably with any
done in the Eastern States. Besides
those enumerated above, the company
requlrei the services of bridge-keepers,
ferry-men, road repairers, station keep
ers, smiths, road-shoers, etc. In fact, it
takes a small army of men to assist in
performing the service on time. No
efforts are spared to make the trip an
agreeable one to passengers, to which
end the drivers, who are usually care
ful, gentlemanly, accommodating, and
jolly fellows, contribute in no small de
An Enterprising Firm. Messrs.
Rosenbaum & Einstein, wholesale ci
gar manufacturers, southeast cor. Bat
tery and Clay streets, San Francisco,
may truly be classed amongst the en
terprising firms of the Pacific Coast.
Their elegant salesrooms and offices
are 30 wide by 70 feet deep, and two
stories in hight. Here we find th
latest productions of their manufactory,!
which is located on Clay street, right
back of the salesroom-, and for which
purpose they occupy two more lofts
w he re t hey e mploy over 1 00 cigar
makers. Their favorite brands at pres
ent arc "Black Diamond," "Elaine,"
"Othello," " Crema de Cuban," and
" Elpeiiou." They make all their pur
chases of leaf tobacco direct in the
East and Havana, ami personally su
perintending the manufacturing de
partment are enabled to produce a su
perior article of cigars which consu
mers will do well to remember. Mr.
Rosenbaum did business in this city for
fourteen years previous to his removal
to San Francisco, and the repuation for
honest dealing built up by him while
here is well deserved. Such firms de
serve to be, and usually are, well patronized.
Meussdorffeh's. There is, per
hans.no better known name on this
Coast than the one which heads this
article: and when speaking of Meuss-
dorfler's, the second thought usually is,
hats, for their numerous bl anches, scat
tered In the different cities on the Coast,
supply nearly one half of the popula
tion with headgear. Mr. Metissdorffcr
arrived on this Coast in 185 1, and has
been established in San Francisco since
iS;2. The principal store is located on
the northeast cor. of Bush and Mont
gomery, and is the largest hat store in
that city. C. H. Meussdorffer, the
Portland hatter, is too well known in
this city to need any recommendation
from us. They make a specialty of
fine goods, and are the leaders of fash
ion on this Coast.

without a doubt, the niojt elegant o'
the kind in the United States. The
display of diamonds and jewelrv as it
